While every step is taken to secure Symmetric, its pools and the underlying assets there are always risks to any DeFi project. New vulnerabilities are discovered, underlying assets collapse in value, regulatory changes impact what is permitted.
One of the challenges of the DeFi space is this unpredictability. Many exchanges have suffered breaches or underlying asset issues and it's always the liquidity providers that suffer.
To help reduce this risk, Symmetric maintains a fund made up of a mix of tokens that can be claimed against in the event of a major event.
How do I make a claim?
In the first instance you should approach a member of the Symmetric operations team to discuss your claim. The operations team can help you to prepare a proposal that sets out the details of the claim which can then go to the DAO to vote on.
